• I've received emails and PM's asking me about "Group Buys" and promotions.

    A Group Buy here on SnoWestOnline.com would be a situation where a normal member (non vendor or mfg) personally collects orders from other members. That member then uses those orders to negotiate a better price with the Vendor/Mfg for HIS/HER "Group" of buyers.

    Here is an example of a viable "Group Buy"

    http://www.snowestonline.com/forum/showthread.php?t=269222

    A promotion that has the words "Group Buy" in the title is still a promotion, and from the rules that were handed down to me by Harris Publications is that non-advertisers cannot run promotions or open sales programs on the forums outside of the swapmeet.

    If a members wants to become a group buy manager, maintain a thread and collect the funds and negotiate a group buy... as a member, you are welcome to do that as long as you are not attached to the business of the vendor or Mfg.

    If you are a vendor/MFG and you want to offer an EXCLUSIVE "SnoWestOnline ONLY" promotion that is exclusive to snowest readers, please contact me and you'll be able to put it up in the Polaris forums.

    Also, before any vendors/mfgs get all "riled up" over this know that the moderators are strictly volunteers and do not receive a dime from any advertising $$ spent on this site.

    As ALWAYS, since DAY ONE of me becoming a moderator, I have pioneered, supported and encouraged vendors and mfgs in getting the word out to our readers with "New Product Announcements.

    Have a great season.

    From this point on, all vendors/mfg's promoting Pre-Season tiered sales programs, in the Polaris Forums, that are not paid advertisers will be appropriately moved to the swapmeet section of the forums.

I agree...everything is that much faster to react on the khaos. Doesn't take long at all to get a handle on it though. Definitely more fun. Works really well with the 2.75 in deep snow. Doesn't wear you out near as much in a long day. Didn't notice much for trenching either with the 165. So far I'm impressed except for how tight you have to run the track and the rich bottom end. l haven't ridden it in set up conditions yet.

Some comparisons to add after riding all weekend with a Doo 165 Expert. On one narrow climb it took two tries each to slay it, the Doo trenched more with its limited let out than my Khaos 165. With the limiter sucked in on the Doo it climbed a little better.

So to compare the two and I wish we had a Pro163/165 there this weekend I would say the Khaos still climbs better than a Doo 165 with the limiter out but maybe a Pro climbs similar to the Doo with it sucked in. I do not have major ski lift on longer controlled climbs even when it’s steep and we are whipping the sled around on a turn out. It’s the little playful kickers I get a little more lift with the 165.

Has any one looks a possibility converting the ski doo expert limiter strap system to the khaos seams like it would make the best of both worlds

ggcustoms thanks for the great review. Now I am torn. I have 2 155 Khaos and have so much fun. Can't decide if I want to go 165 Khaos or stick with 155. I think if Poo comes out with a 900 or turbo, I'll likely do a 165 Khaos, but if no new engine, I'll keep what I have. 165 looks like a better all around machine, but I have loved that wheelie and party of the 155".

For what it's worth, I'm a beginner sledder, My only power sports experience being dirt bikes. I bought a new sled this past fall, and spent a lot of time back and forth deciding between the Pro and Khaos. I ended up going buying a Khaos based off of the "playful" factor. I honestly can't imagine riding a Pro at this point. The Khaos does everything I want and need it to do. I'm confident that when I gain more experience and want to do Pro terrain, that I will be able to with my Khaos 165.

one of my buddies and I both did longer tracks and Ice Age "chaos" skids this year. he 163, me 165. both of us have similar thoughts.
the longer track khaosed pros, doesn't really feel any different than the 155 pros.
we think the longer tracks/skids take the "khaos" out of it.

I have a buddy who has 2 155 khaos sleds. another buddy who has a 165 khaos. The buddy who has the 155s says the 165 is nothing like his. not "khaos" playful at all.

Shock settings make a huge difference on the Khaos.
My buddies Pro 163 is more Khaos than my 155 Khaos with my high/low speed maxed right.

My 162 Khaos shocks pro axys is definitely wild.

Maybe it’s the 5# of boost at sea level that does that. 🤷🏻‍♂️
